Fastpipe

Need Answer

Good day

I would like to find if the same controllers that work with Fastnest will work with Fastpipe. Also does the software convert the round shape into a flat pattern for cutting and make compensation for the diameter of the pipe being cut if the CNC pipe cutting machine is chuck driven?

Is there maybe a demo available? I couldnt find any videos of how the software operates.

Thanks

Nicholas

Dear Nicholas,

FastPIPE uses different POST PROCESSORS to FastNEST. The same brand of CNC controllers themselves could be configured for plate cutting machine or for a pipe cutting machine. But at the end the cutting machine would require a separate POST for FastPIPE to make pipe cutting files vs a POST for FastNEST to make plate cutting files.

FastPIPE does output to a 'flat pattern' for chuck driven pipe cutting machines.

Hi Jackson

Thanks for the response. When you say POST what are you referring to? Any recommendations for a controller.

Just a side note, I cant seem to get the video to play, tried using VLC media player, but no luck, just shows a blank screen.

Thanks

Nicholas

Dear Nicholas,

POST PROCESSOR is the module involved in output of machine controller specific Gcodes.

Do you have a pipe cutting machine presently? are you considering buying one or perhaps just buying a controller in order to build one yourself?

I understand you are in contact with our Mr Hao Li via email. Let him know your requirements via email and he will be able to assist further.
